i want a ramen list

from movies like The Ramen Girl (with brittany murphy) to Anthony Bourdain trying to find the perfect bowl of ramen in Sapporo to David Chang and Momofuku, those packages of dried noodles i used to eat at midnight in college has become all the rage!  i don’t think i truly appreciate the craze but i do appreciate the textures of ingredients, the quality of the noodles, and depth of the broth in a really good bowl of ramen.  and every foodie around me seems to have a list on where to go, so i want one too!

so, here is my running list of places i’ve had ramen around the bay…
